Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community Members,

I am thrilled to extend my warmest greetings and introduce myself as your Superintendent. It is with great pride and excitement that I embark on this journey with you, as I am no stranger to the Pasco School District, having been a part of it for more than 26 years.

My journey within this wonderful district began as a kindergarten teacher, and over the years, I had the privilege of serving in various roles, including assistant principal and principal at McLoughlin Middle School. Along the way, I took on broader responsibilities, such as serving as the District's Director of Human Resources, Executive Director of Teaching and Learning, and Deputy Superintendent.

In July 2016, I had the honor of being sworn in as your new Superintendent. Since that day, I have been dedicated to ensuring the highest quality education for all our students. It has been an incredible experience, and I can honestly say that I've been running ever since, driven by my commitment to providing the best learning environment possible.

Our school district is one of strength and diversity, comprising over 2,500 devoted employees who are passionately invested in the education and well-being of our more than 19,000 talented students. As your Superintendent, I promise to foster a collaborative and inclusive community that values each individual's unique talents and contributions.

I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for our district, and I firmly believe that with the support of our incredible community, we can accomplish remarkable things.

Thank you for entrusting me with the privilege of serving as your Superintendent. Together, let's build a future filled with boundless opportunities and success for every student.

We Are Pasco,

Michelle Whitney Signature
